Question

Hi Sir/Madam, I Entered USA in June 2013 with L1B Visa ,Continued on L1B for 2 year 3 Months and got converted to H1B(picked in lottery) in 2015 (there was Change of Status : L1B to H1B) From Oct 2015 I continued in H1B status till Dec 2016.(H1B Valid 1 Year) Applied for H1B extension and got approved from Jan 2017 till Aug 2019.So Continued my stay in H1B till Feb 2018.Exited USA in Feb 2018 and Stayed in India till Apr 2019. Now I re entered USA in May 2019 and applied for H1B extension seeking to recapture the time on H1B Status. In the current H1B extension I had not provided my L1B status details because I considered 1 year clock reset But I got RFE to explain that my stay commences from June 2013 and need to clarify my status as on June 2013. Does this mean my stay in L1B status would be considered in the H1B 6 year Limit? Or only the time I spent in H1B status would be considered for H1B Max Period Please let me know when do I Max out my H1B. Details : L1B status : June 2013 to Sep 2015 H1B Status : Oct 2015 to Dec 2016 H1B Status : Jan 2017 to Feb 2018 Outside USA : Feb 2018 to Apr 2019 (1 Year 2 Months) H1B Status : May 2019 till Date.. Thanks, Kumar
